  6. I'm a fan, and I'm a fan of the one you've got above. I never knew what they actually called until now, just that it was a distant relative of Broccolini or something lol.

  15. Yummy and something that I think all chinese families and singaporean have eaten at least 100 times! Is kailan part of the Kale family? I've seen kale but the leaves look so crinkly and funny!

  17. Hi Shirley,
    I'm not a huge fan of Kale but I have been trying to include it in my diet at least once a month, lol...These ingredient sound tempting. Next time it's "time for Kale" I'll keep them in mind. Yours actually looks pretty darn good:)

    Thanks so much for sharing, Shirley...
